    He had a vision.

    "Tom had a vision yesterday he saw a house in it. He went to that house that he had seen in the vision."

    Please check.

    Re: He had a vision.

    I do not think the word "vision" is appropriate in the context.
    Vision refers to seeing something that is impressive or extraordinary. I don't think seeing a house is considered a vision.

    You need a "which" after "yesterday".

    The first sentence is a run-on sentence.

    I'd say something like "Tom had a dream about a house yesterday. He later went to the house that he'd seen in the dream. "

    Or:

    "Tom had a dream yesterday, in which he saw a house. He then went to the house he'd seen in the dream."

    Re: He had a vision.

    But there's no indication that it was a dream. It could have been an hallucination, an epileptic prodrome, or something supernatural.

    tedmc, a vision doesn't have to be special or extraordinary in content. Macbeth had a vision of a dagger, for instance. Most supernatural visions in stories do have some symbolic significance though. We don't know anything about the context of Tom's vision.

    I think I have seen it in movies but I am not sure. Yesterday I was watching finale destination 5 but I didn't hear this word but I have heared it on T.V. People say "I had a vision." It's not a dream. They see somehing when they are awake and mostly it has something to do with the future happenings like in "finale destination series." I think now I have few words for it "future sight or second sight", "premonition or precognition" and "prescience."

    Tom had a foretelling vision, where he saw a house. Then he went to the house seen in the vision.

    Could it mean that he went to the house while he was in the vision?
